Join us for a day of practice - making space for our responses and finding action
The day will be inspired by practices and perspectives offered by eco philosopher and Buddhist practitioner Joanna Macy, involving: meditation; pair work; journaling; activities in the big group; walking in the gardens; as well as some shared lunch.
Please bring a plate of vegetarian / gluten free food for shared lunch. As well a closed water bottle, hat, walking shoes and writing materials.
As Canadian scientist Ashlee Cunsolo writes:
"When I was experiencing my own very severe ecological grief, one of the things that really helped me through was talking to the indigenous elders – having people to share with. It was a really amazing moment, because they talked about how grief isn’t something to avoid or be scared of. It’s certainly painful. It can be terribly isolating; it can be a really horrible experience. But if we come together, and we share our grief, and we share pain and emotions, there’s a real strength to that."
Thanks to Melbourne Centre for Mindfulness for supporting us by offering the hall free.
